Rêve Bohèmes (DK)
Nordic gipsy jazz - with Django Reinhardt in the bag
The inspiration from French guitarist Django Reinhardt and his Gypsy Jazz is the starting point for Rêve Boheme's acoustic sound and fun-loving music.
Over the past 15 years, and on their many releases, the band has updated the European String Swing with a new and varied repertoire.
It consists of new interpretations of Reinhardt's songs, his own compositions and well-known songs from the American jazz singer tradition. A musical mix they call "Nordic Gypsy Jazz".
Rêve Bohème plays Django's Gypsy Jazz in a modern, outgoing and dynamic style that makes them some of the finest exponents of the Nordic region in this European jazz genre.
At their concerts, Rêve Bohème creates an exotic acoustic cocktail, in which Jens Fuglsang's well-presented vocal and lyrical solo guitar mix elegantly with Finn Poulsen's virtuosic harmonica playing and vocals.
